Re: Limiting characters on status update

Hi @antonrsa; I’ve been looking into this myself, but have given up on it for now as very time-consuming to research and do properly. Being as it’s all browser based (not my usual bread and butter), there are lots of ways using JavaScript, and a Google search will provide links to free code that’s not difficult to use, In the main. I found that it’s far from foolproof though, and then a friend suggested that cutting user posts down might give them reason to stay away. I’m bowing to their wisdom and leaving it be for the time being.

One thing I do want to do, and am researching right now, is make posts in groups stay in the groups and not clog up the main activity stream. I’ve filtered minor things out thanks to help from @nprn1, but want to see the main stream further, erm, streamlined. Once a site gets busy it could be a nightmare for Mr & Mrs P.C. Phobic. If I crack it I’ll post the function in case it helps anyone.
